The Palladio 1.1 Release

Release notes 2015-10-21

Check out version 1.1


  1. General: We added a progress indicator to let you know when rendering is happening. Look for a swoosh around the Palladio “P” in the upper left corner.
  2. Data Refine: Allow “ignore” option for special characters in the edit dimension view.
  3. Data Refine: Red dot goes to gray for a reviewed/edited/verified dimension.
  4. Map view: Allow the use of WMS URLS. YAY!!!
  5. Map view: improvements to map data rendering time.
  6. Map view: We have removed the ‘mouseclick to filter’ on the map points. We will be replacing this with a mouseclick for popover that will give more detailed information about a point on the map than we see in the tooltip.
  7. Timespan: Add the group name to the tooltip.
  8. Timespan: Highlight timespans on mouseover to clarify for which timespan the tooltip is displayed.
  9. Timespan: Enable grouping of timespans by another dimension (hovering will highlight all spans related to a record if a span appears in more than one group due to a multi-value field).
  10. Facet Filter: show ([number selected out of] / [total number]) for each dimension. We need to let people know at a glance how many of a thing they are seeing in a view. We can do this easily with FF instead of mucking up the interface with more information.
  11. Facet Filter: Performance improvement in facet filter by using filterExact when possible.
  12. Saving a project: Add date to metadata per project (more coming)
  13. Saving a project: save files can reference external data (performance improvement). Including toggle option so that user can control if data is saved along with Palladio save file or is referenced in a remote location. Only available if file is loaded from URL, not if data is dragged or pasted into Palladio directly. Try putting the URL of a Dropbox file in your Public folder where you normally paste your data.
  14. Saving a project: Now you can save a project from Safari browser! The save file name will be “Unknown.” You’ll need to rename it. At least the download works.

Bug Fixes

  1. Timespan: The bar layout was displaying duplicate values.
  2. Facet filter: fixed a bug where the clear/remove controls stopped appearing.
  3. Map view: Fixed a bug that caused the legend graphics to appear squished.
  4. Data Refine: We no longer flag the data format “Coordinates” for review because of commas and dashes.
  5. Map View: At the request of our friends at Mapbox, we added Mapbox branding when using Mapbox tiles.
  6. Saving a project: Fixed a bug where saving a project would kill links/extensions.
  7. General: Fixed a bug where font-awesome drag icon was not appearing.
  8. Facet Filter: Fixed a bug where adding a dimension triggered multiple updates, causing slowness.
  9. Data Refine: For a while, if you needed to remove a table that was extended from the primary table in order to fix it and re-load it, the re-load would fail. That has been fixed.
  10. Timespan Filter: Fixed a problem where filter settings were not saved with the Palladio save file (download).
  11. Facet Filter: Fixed a display problem that caused dimensions to stack.
  12. Timespan Filter: Fixed a problem where, if a filter is already in place when the timespan is added, then the filter is removed, the lines will overflow the view area.
